Abstract

A description is given of the increasing numeric processing requirements encountered during instrumentation development with the Intel 8051 microcontroller and of an assembly-language floating-point package obtained and used. For the authors' application, where there was plenty of time to perform calculations and program memory to store the software required to perform the calculations, incorporation of assembly-language floating-point routines (compatible with ANSI/IEEE Std 754-1985) was an effective method.
